Our co-curricular programme

Our co-curricular programme

There is overwhelming evidence that students who involve themselves in co-curricular activities excel in their academic studies. But our co-curricular programme is about so much more than that. We want our students to try new things, to discover and nurture talent, and to challenge themselves to go beyond their own expectations.

Younger students do three activities a week or more, while older students are guided to develop a balanced programme as a counterpoise to their academic studies and to develop their leadership skills.

Explore, evolve and enjoy

Themes of Creativity, Activity and Service guide our programme, with students encouraged to ensure they include activities that cover these areas.

With over 90 activities per term, there are plenty of exciting things for our students to try, from dance to electronics, chess to yoga – as well as off-site activities including sailing and the Duke of Edinburgh Award.

There are also weekend activities for boarders (and day students who want to join in), including cinema trips, bowling, theme parks and visits to London.

Our aims for students

  • To challenge themselves in different situations and develop greater personal confidence and social skills
  • To recognise the worth of both participation and excellence
  • To develop a strong sense of responsibility, mutual support, self-awareness and tolerance towards each other, our school and our community
  • To progress personal interests and develop new skills and passions through a broad range of creative, active and service activities
